|With Kenny Britt seemingly unable to fulfill his vast potential, Tennessee used an early-round draft pick for the second year in a row to address the wide receiver position. After taking Kendall Wright in the first round of the 2012 draft, the team used an early second-round pick this season to acquire Justin Hunter. The Tennessee product has outstanding speed and solid size at 6'4”, 200 pounds but is considered a raw prospect as he enters the pros. Given his lack of playing time in college, Hunter isn't expected to contribute much as a rookie, and an offseason hamstring injury puts him further behind the learning curve. Since Britt is entering a contract year and the Titans are unlikely to re-sign him, Hunter is an excellent prospect in dynasty formats. He is waiver-wire material in redraft formats.

Preseason flop comes up big late in Week 3
|Justin Hunter did what the Tennessee Titans drafted him to do on Sunday – at the most crucial time of the game. Hunter went up and out-jumped Crezdon Butler and caught a 34-yard touchdown reception from Jake Locker with 15 seconds to play, propelling the Tennessee Titans to a 20-17 comeback victory over the San Diego Chargers in the home opener at LP Field.
"We have a lot of faith in Justin. Justin is going to be an extremely special player,” offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said. (Titans Insider)|
FF Today's Take: Locker reportedly asked the coaching staff to replace Kenny Britt with Hunter on the game-winning drive. However, before owners scurry to the waiver wire to pick up Hunter, keep in mind the rookie played a total of 17 snaps over the first two weeks and drew the ire of his coaches for most of the preseason. Either way, Britt's stock is pointing down in a big way while Nate Washington and Kendall Wright look to have secure roles in the Titans' offense for the foreseeable future.
